Adler, a 16-year state senator from Cherry Hill, discussed his positions on the economy, foreign relations, Iraq, immigration, health care and partisanship during an hourlong meeting Wednesday with the Courier-Post Editorial Board.
Adler is running against Medford Mayor Chris Myers, a Republican, for the seat being vacated by retiring Republican Rep. Jim Saxton of Mount Holly.
Myers met with the editorial board Sept. 23.
Adler has billed himself as a champion for the middle-class whose upbringing as the son of a small-business owner in Haddonfield allows him to relate to his constituents.
“My parents lived the American Dream,” he said, a dream that was nearly destroyed when his father died after suffering several heart attacks.
